Ohm Shanthi Oshaana Podcast! We Are Both in Love With Nivin Pauly

Another podcast!  No big new movie this week, so instead I invited Dina over to my place for a movie night.  Which gave me the opportunity to finally force her to watch a Malayalam film.  Ohm Shanthi Oshaana, which also meant that she immediately fell in love with Nivin Pauly.

    • I know! I am super excited, now that we only live 5 minutes from each other, we can watch movies all the time and I can force her to see all kinds of things. I’m thinking, Bangalore Days or City of God next, then Premam if she is still in love with Nivin. Heck, we can even see the new Nivin movie together in theaters!

    • I have read that, and it is a wonderful article. I think what Dina meant was that the Hindi film industry feels the pressure of being perceived as the national cinema, being India’s global face and the one all the politicians and so on pay attention to. Whereas the other industries can focus more on simply serving their audience.


  1. Dina’s reaction to Nivin’s smoldering was so relatable. This supporting role actually really helped his climb to stardom because of the film’s appeal to women, and even in a female-centric film, the male love interest gets undue credit for taking a supporting role and pushing the film to a bigger audience.

    Speaking of, have you heard about the Women in Cinema Collective? It’s getting a lot of attention from other industries where a movement like that wouldn’t be possible and it ties into the things you guys discussed. Malayalam cinema can accommodate a women’s union because of Kerala’s history of unionization and the industry itself being young and agile due to small budgets.


    • Yes, I think someone else sent me a link about the Women’s Collective. It’s a great idea, and it’s also a sign of how many prominent women there are in Kerala cinema, in all fields.

  2. Ohm Shanti Oshana is a great starter Malayalam film! This was actually my second movie after Bangalore Days but I love both movies. I love Nazriya Nazim!

    I actually haven’t listened to the actual podcast because I want to rewatch the movie and then listen to it 🙂


  3. hii..don’t miss ‘godha’ if u loved om Santhi oshana so much..its a similar girl centric film with a stronger heroine


    • I was hoping to see it this weekend, but I ran out of time. Hopefully some day this week I’ll be able to catch it!
